. the assault weapons has nothing to do with handguns. not only that, senator marco rubio says it simply will not work because criminals always figure a way to get a gun in their hands. >> not just chicago. washington, d.c. had a very similar gun ban and it didn't work. violent crime and murder skyrocketed in washington during the time of those bans. i'm a concealed weapons permit holder in florida. that means i had to have a background check, be finger printed, take a gun safety course. >> you don't object to any of that? >> no. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to a background check on you? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being he
on in the senate. this week we saw that senator marco rubio came out with a plan and is getting actually great endorsement from some of the right wing conservatives and pundits and influence makers in our party. and also from the wous. when was the last time you heard, you know, right wing conservative pundits and the white house agree on anything? they agreed that this plan was actually aed goo thing. so it looks like there is some hope on that. it's going to require a very delicate balancing act, by the white house, by democrats, and republicans in congress. >> and very quickly, what do you think it will look like in this second term? >> well, in terms of immigration, i do think that it is a priority for this president. it sounds like the republicans are getting to the point where, and we heard this right after the election, that they understood what they needed to do to attract latinos to the party, when you hear sean hannity talk about, we have to do comprehensive immigration reform, you know they've moved the needle. i think that marco's proposal is very positive. i've talked to a lot of
. the election was a wake-up call. the white house said senator marco rubio's latest comments on immigration reform bode well for the possibility of cooperation. republicans have been no friend to wage earners, particularly over the past four years. to them immigration reform has the potential to put more votes in the democratic column. but if republicans ignore the issue, they risk losing even more hispanic voters and minority voters across the board. this might finally be the time for something that is long overdue. and it could be great for the american economy. the tech industry wants to reform because it would stop the brain drain of highly skilled workers. putting undocumented laborers on the books is a good thing because it pumps dollars into the economy. i am joined tonight by hilda solis, secretary of labor who is leaving that position, but in my opinion has done a fabulous job. >> thank you. >> you've been a tremendous advocate across the board for not just labor, but for the environment, green jobs, women's rights. >> thank you. >> the lot. hilda, what about immigration reform and
and implication and marco rubio made the point on my radio show today, the implication is you don't sign onto the president's proposals, you somehow are not treating the children or standing behind him with due respect. that's what i find offensive. that's the implicit message here. these children are with me. are you against the children? and that's where i think-- >> i think he's originally right when he said that kids really shouldn't be part of the political discussion. leave, now, kids out of it. >> the whole gun control debate has fired up everybody, but the president said today, if i quote him correctly, that anyone who disagrees new gun law opponents want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue. is there room for a fear disagreeing with the president or some of the things he did not all of them, is there room with this president? >> i don't think so. he talked about the republican friendly media the other day. obviously, he's talking about talk radio and maybe fox and other websites. this is what he routinely does. rather than have a real conversation, and say, look, i think there
for the same thing. >> marco rubio was quoted saying nothing that the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. do you agree? >> that's probably true. a woman had guns, i don't know if she went through a background check, but her son certainly didn't. he took his mother pf's guns an killed people. that doesn't mean having fewer guns around isn't a bad idea. there are people who run through traffic lights, does that mean we should get rid of traffic lights? no, in macrosense, they work. if you have fruer guns, things are better. in new york state, we have strong gun laws. we have fewer guns on the streets. our murder rate is one of the lowest murder rates of any big city. >> newt gingrich brought this up on the show the other day. you look at a city like chicago that has tough gun legislation and a high murder rate. >> new york has tough gun legislation and a low murder rate. it's not a panacea for everything. you have to have a good police department, have it well led, diversified, deploy it where the problems are, aggressive with the kids who are most likely to carr
marco rubio, hispanic from florida. we have african-american senator tim scott, just appointed. 24s pretty good stuff. >> it is. >> the question is if you did so well on the diversity issues at the state level for these gubernatorial and senate races why can't you get it done at the presidential level? >> well, the presidential level is a little different thing that i'm in charge of at the house level, but we had 21 women candidates and incumbents, all of whom the democrats targeted and replaced with men. you know, we have done a pretty good job, but not as good as we can do at recruitment. we lost african-american candidates and incumbents like allen west and mia love out in utah. so we've got our work to do, but we've had some terrific candidates. we've got terrific members now. we need to listen and learn and do a better job of communicating to get at the issues you're talking about, larry, which is what all americans want. it's a better economy. how do you have a president, as you talked about, that has a jobs council that only meets once? >> i know. it's xwroerd. >> come on. >>
? is he willing to come to the table with marco rubio, or does he really want to keep bashing more radical elements of the republican party? does i want to deal this year or take it to 2014? those are the questions. >> that's sort of the administration beyond the party. e.j. >> what you are seeing from obama is someone who is willing now to say right up front this is what i want, and then let's deal. there's a lot of talk that the assault weapons ban can't get enough votes. he didn't say i should take that out of my plan as a concession to the other side. i want to put it in there, and let's negotiate it. maybe if i can't get that, i'll get everything else. the other point is he -- during the campaign in 2008, it may have been as early as 2007, he liked comparing himself to railroad. what's significant about what michael said is reagan wasn't just a guy who had eight years in mind. he wanted to build a long conservative ascend yancey, and what obama has in mind is i won't get everything done in these four years. i may have a republican house the entire time, but i can begin to build a move
that in the elections. i mean, it was pretty clear. >> yeah, well, in speaking of elections marco rubio senator from florida is going to be a pivotal figure in any discussion about immigration in this country. "the washington post" editorial board writes about senator rubio's efforts at immigration reform saying, quote, the center piece of mr. rubio's plan, a pathway to citizenship with stages, is new for him. as a candidate for the senate in 2010, he denounced amnesty for immigrants without papers. his position now labels not with standing represents a shift. it also requires guts. mr. rubio one of just three hispanics in the senate has made clear he is willing to lead. the question in the coming months is whether his party's main stream in congress, in state capitals, can be coaxed toward moderation. what does senator rubio do about his colleagues over in the house of representatives? >> well, he is a key player and he is willing to work in coalition. i mean, right now in washington that is the key issue. are you willing to get over that one single threshold of working in coalition? do you think t
of the year you could see a deal coming together. you have to watch marco rubio. if he comes out to an eventual pathway to citizenship, and you're going to go through a whole bunch of obstacles, payments, but if he ultimately supports is, you can get a deal. >> it's in his initial plan. >> what about five years ago though? george w. bush the president of the united states supported immigration reform and he got absolutely rolled by republicans in the house and the senate. marco rubio doesn't have the power to make a republican from iowa support this. >> he might. >> no, he doesn't. >> he's one of the few republicans who's conservative enough he can get people to change their habits. if you don't, the numbers will kill them. you can't leave the fastest growing group in america in perpetuity. texas politics are in the different today. four years, eight years, they're radically different. if you look at the growth of hispanic in texas, you have the five largest cities. they're all moving to the middle largely because you have growing minority populations. the cou
. the "new york times," senator marco rubio is attempting to rally fellow republicans around the idea of major immigration reform, advocating for fair treatment for foreigners who play by the rules but not rule out legal status for those who enter the country illegally. representative paul ryan has already endorsed rubio's plan. legislators find 39 states are not considering new gun regulations and some may relax their gun laws. having more guns available for self-defense may curb gun violence. >>> the "washington post." clarence thomas broke a 7-year silence during oral arguments. what he was saying was unclear. sources say he was joking about the ivy league and the k transcript only partially showed what he said. he hasn't spoken since 1996. >>> walmart plans to hire any veteran who wants a job and officials project it will lead to 100,000 veterans in five years. >> that's a promise, significant. >> great news. also really quickly again, we want to show while we're doing the papers, the daily news, nra, coming up on the anniversary of newtown, where 20 young children were killed, ha
, take a look at this picture. florida senator marco rubio with glakstone ceo steve schwartzman yesterday, and yes, those are some penguins. the photos at the bottom of the picture are penguins from sea world orlando who happened to be in schwartzman's new york office when rubio happened to stop by because that's what you do, you have penguins in your office when you have a big private equity firm. the penguins are part of the antarctica exhibit at the new york travel show that's coming up this weekend. >>> still ahead on "squawk box," thinking outside the box to pay down our nation's debt. economist miles kimball wants the u.s. to create a sovereign wealth fund that would focus on profit making. he'll explain at 8:40 a.m. >>> welcome back to "squawk box." right now, futures up 15 points. that's more than 10. a side car on a motorcycle. that would be fun. you've got to admit. >> by the way, somebody tweeted us an old sort of antique picture of two guys, with a motorcycle and the side car and they said joe and andrew. >> you won't have to shift. >> i will do all and sit there in pure terro
